    Every bird is going to be different when they escape captivity. Some
    will hook up with accepting flocks of native birds and others will
    not. I live in New England, and it is very cold here. The birds that
    join flocks will survive jsut as well as the rest of the flock. A
    single escaped bird will not likely survive alone. Escaped birds that
    are hungry and cold, also know that humans have food and they often
    times will fly to a human when they have no other choice left except to
    die. I gave an opinion and an example, I didn't say anything negative
    toward you, so whats with the attitude? -Alison-
